AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Walmart is extending its store hours in most of its locations.
It will now change the closing time from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
"Expanding our hours of operations provides customers with greater options to shop food, medicine and supplies," the company said on Twitter.
The extended hours have taken effect at more than 4,000 of the company’s 4,700 Walmart stores.
